Level of Mekong, tributaries forecast to rise in coming weeks

VIENTIANE (Vientiane Times/ANN) – The level of the Mekong River – the longest river in Southeast Asia – will increase gradually in the coming weeks after falling to a record rainy-season low that is affecting farmers and businesses.

The Meteorology and Hydrology Department issued the forecast on Monday, suggesting that there will be more rainfall at the end of this month and early next month. The rainfall will result in a gradual rise in the level of the Mekong and its main tributaries.
